may is for the tulips in ottawa.

one of the reasons i love ottawa so much is the fact that you get four true seasons. in the winter you can skate the canal - in the summer there's green everywhere, in the fall the city is on fire with maple trees and in the spring there's the tulips.

hundreds of thousands of tulips are planted in gardens along the pathway that borders dow's lake. you just want to capture it ALL on film. but it doesn't do it justice to capture the scene on camera - i could take a million pictures of tulips (which i have and i will continue to do each year that i live here) but the colours are just something that when you see in person it's an amazing experience.





every time i turned around, there was another tulip i wanted to take a picture of ^^^^




i'm not from this city originally, but i speculate that if you grew up here, you have a picture of you as a child in front of the tulips in the spring. it's a right of passage more or less. this is the first year that i've lived here that my parents have been able to take in the tulips as well - which was awesome because i got to participate just like a tourist again.
